We can't get enough of the silky, flavorful, and moist ingredients used in chef Stephanie Williams' Oshēn Smoked Salmon. Chef Williams, of Rooted Montauk, used fresh and local ingredients to create a dish for the Kate Bock x Hamptons Magazine event that is as delicious as it is pretty. These bites make for the perfect light start to dinner and are a hit at any party.

Oshēn Smoked Salmon

Step 1

Mix sugar, salt, and thyme together in a small bowl and rub the mixture onto the salmon.

Step 2

Cover the bowl and let chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Step 3

Soak wood chips in water for 30 minutes. Then drain the water from the bowl and place the wood chips into a roasting pan.

Step 4

Set a wire rack over the wood chips.

Step 5

Take the salmon out of the refrigerator and remove the salmon from the bowl. Pat dry.

Step 6

Drizzle the salmon with olive oil and place it on the wire rack, skin-side down.

Step 7

Place the roasting pan on high heat until the wood chips start to smoke.

Step 9

Reduce the heat to low and tightly cover the roasting pan with a few layers of foil. Cook for 30 minutes.

Step 10

Let the salmon cool completely, still covered. Once the pan is cool, in a large mixing bowl, flake the salmon and lightly mix in creme fraiche, lemon, ground black pepper, and chives.

Step 11

Serve with cucumbers or toast to plate.
